Candle wax readings are similar to tea leave readings, but instead of reading symbols and messages formed by wet tea leaves inside your teacup, candle drippings formed in water are interpreted.
The following materials will be needed:
Any type of container can be used as a scrying bowl. However, it is best to use a bowl made out of natural materials or one that has a reflective surface.
Avoid using plastics and aluminum containers
Ceramic or glass bowls are excellent choices
Any form of water can be used during scrying. However, I have found that natural water from a stream or rain works best.
Pen and paper
Candle with matches
For the main candle used for scrying, you have the choice of using a white candle or a colored candle that represents the question that you want to ask.
Note: You do not necessarily need to have a definite question to be able to scry.
Small tea light candles can be placed around the room to create a peaceful atmosphere.
Gather the supplies needed for your candle wax reading session.
Prepare a room to your liking (lock the doors, close the blinds, etc). Dim the lights, light some incense, and allow the light of small candles to dance around the room.
Concentrate on your breathing, taking deep breathes and feeling calmness consume you.
As you fall into a deeper state of meditation, feel your energy flow through you.
When ready, push the energy outward and imagine its white color engulf your surroundings.
At this time, you should be feeling either a tingly sensation inside of you or be so relaxed that you experience yourself entering a deeper dimension.
Once you feel comfortable, open your eyes.
Write your question down (if you have one) on a piece of paper and place it next to the scrying water bowl.
When ready, light the candle that will be used to scry and allow the wax to drip upon the water inside the bowl.
Do not move the bowl or touch the water.
Let the wax and water blend naturally.
Keep a state of calmness and relaxation throughout the process, maintaining your question in mind.
The time that you spent during this phase of the ritual is up to you. Some people believe they get the answer to their question in a couple of minutes, while others wait till the entire candle is finished.
Once exhaustion starts setting in, the energy around you will begin to dissipate and slowly become smaller.
Allow the energy to naturally fade out and come back inside you.
Take the piece of paper where you wrote your question and allow it to be burnt by the fire of the candle that was used during scrying or dip it into the water.
Put out the fire of the candle, turn on the lights, and begin to interpret your wax findings. There are no right or wrong ways to interpret candle wax. It is your own personal experience!
Numbers can indicate days, weeks, months, or years.
Letters can represent clues to a person’s name or place.
A circle could represent the beginning or end of a cycle.
A cluster of dots may represent a group of people.
If there is one formation sitting at a distance from the other drippings, it could represent isolation.
Night poured over the desert. It came suddenly, in purple. In the clear air, the stars drilled down out of the sky, reminding any thoughtful watcher that it is in deserts and high places that religions are generated. When men see nothing but bottomless infinity over their heads they have always had a driving and desperate urge to find someone to put in the way.
